On January 12th 2003, in Phoenix (Arizona), a 21-year old computer addict died of an overdosis of prescription drugs while chatting on the internet. Soon after this tragic event, a text file containing a transcription of the dialogs that occured in the chatroom appeared on numerous websites. Re-processing the dialogs recorded before, during and after his death, the multimedia ensemble N3krozoft Ltd expands the network tragedy into a caustic ectoplasmic seance.
